Hi-ARTS Gallery is proud to present A Rose in Spanish Harlem featuring the works of Sandra Fabara aka Lady Pink, renowned painter, muralist, educator and iconic figure in the world of fine art, graffiti, and street art. This exhibition displays prints, paintings, and woodcuts that illustrate varying stages of her creative output over the past several years. Both fantastical and surreal, Lady Pink braids both a lived life and imagined life into her paintings. Often choosing the female figure or her name as a landmark she constructs narratives around femininity, solace, empowerment, and belonging into her works. Featured alongside her work will be the canvas work of students from the 2016 Black Book Master Class. Curated by Carlos Mare
OPENING: June 16th 6-8pm
VIEWING HOURS: Tues, Thurs, Sat. 2pm-7pm
GALLERY RUNS: June 16th-July 30th, 2016
Celebrating the streets, solidarity, community and culture! Eager to spruce up his neighborhood, Welling Court resident Jonathan Ellis connected with Ad Hoc Art in fall 2009 and they hit it off in great stride. The first Welling Court Mural Project (WCMP) debuted in May 2010 with 40+ murals transforming the neighborhood into a creative celebration and unique public art experience. Now in its 6th year, the WCMP continues to meld a spectacular crew of legendary artists together with a fresh mix of emerging talents. Spanning over 50 years of public work and over 130 murals, the WCMP is one of the best collections of contemporary street culture on earth, all within this hidden gem of NYC; free and open to the public 24/7/365!
